 Odelia Hubara

2/28/2005


Feb 28, 2005 - Odelia Hubara, 26, of Jerusalem was one of five people killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the Stage club on the Tel Aviv promenade on Friday, February 25. The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack.

Critically wounded in the head and chest in the blast, Odelia remained unconscious in Ichilov Hospital and died of her wounds on  February 28, bringing the death toll to five.

Odelia and her good friend Revital, Yaron Grayevsky's husband, had organized the surprise party for Yaron together. When Odelia arrived at the Stage Club, she saw that it was still early and sent Revital an SMS message saying that she and Yaron shouldn't come yet. A few minutes later the terrorist detonated the bomb, mortally wounding her.

Odelia grew up in Jerusalem, where she attended the Rene Cassin high school. She worked for Bezeq, Israel’s major telecommunications provider, and was planning to join her boyfriend Eitan in the US in April. They were talking about getting married.

"She knew how to live and enjoy every moment," said her brother Alon. "She always organized family events and was the life of the party."

Odelia Hubara was buried in Jerusalem. She is survived by her parents, Shimon and Dalia, and two brothers, Alon and Oren.
